This recipe is simple and delicious. Our kids loved the turkey meatballs. It's got a relatively mellow flavor akin to chicken noodle, but a bit more interesting and complex. Great comfort food with a healthier twist!

    I put my portion of this soup in a separate pot at the end and added about three times as much spinach as recommended, while loading in only about half as many turkey meatballs as recommended. I thought my version was very tasty and would recommend it if you are looking for a delicious way to eat a lot of healthy greens without as many calories.

    This is a variation
    • Terrific! Threw it together quickly and everyone at our house (and those who came for dinner) enjoyed it-
      Looking forward to the leftovers-

        OMG so good I will never eat canned Italian Wedding again. I mixed the meatball part in the food processor and bought precut carrots and celery. Made the meatballs a half inch sho they could be eaten without cutting.

          I love the look of this recipe because it has so many veggies! I don't care for spinach in my soup, when I make my Italian meatball soup, I use broccoli rabe or turnip greens.
